  • New Integrated Assessment Tool and RAS providers

    The Department of Health and Aged Care have advised that the Integrated Assessment Tool (IAT) has now replaced the National Aged Care Screening and Assessment Form.

    The IAT is the new tool for assessing eligibility of older people for government subsidised aged care.

    The commencement of the IAT is the first stage of implementing the Single Assessment System which aims to make it easier for older people to access aged care and adapt services as their needs change. The IAT will allow assessors to collect more complete information about the person seeking services to tailor recommendations and referrals.

    There are no changes to aged care eligibility requirements or referrals to urgent services.

    The Department has also released an updated list of Regional Assessment Service (RAS) organisations by state, territory and region.
